No sooner had the work for the Málaga Temple been completed than the Kadampa Art Studio at Manjushri KMC switched focus to preparing statues and art for smaller urban Temples.
Seventeen fortunate students from Kadampa centers around the world are currently engaged in a six-month training course at Kadampa Art Studio at Manjushri KMC.
Kadampa Art Studio is abuzz with activity. Over the last two years they have made well over a thousand objects to adorn the new Temple in Málaga.
The artists and volunteers at the Kadampa Art Studio have been hard at work for months preparing statues and adornments for the Málaga temple which is due to open in June.
The New Kadampa Tradition – International Kadampa Buddhist Union is developing many Temples and Kadampa Meditation Centers internationally. There is a need for more skilled individuals to help with such projects, therefore the Kadampa Art Studio will be offering a six month Statue Production Training Course to develop a foundation of experience for Kadampas wishing to contribute to these auspicious projects.
The Kadampa Art Studio at Manjushri KMC is buzzing with volunteer visitors of all ages and backgrounds helping to prepare objects for the new Temple in Málaga, the new centre in Leeds, and many other centres around the world. This summer the Studio has enjoyed the company of many young people, including recent graduates and students in their vacation weeks.
The development of the new Temple for World Peace in Málaga, Spain, depends upon the invaluable contribution made by volunteers helping out at the Kadampa Art Studio in the UK. There are always openings for people who want to join this team as a volunteer visitor.
